Lab and Testing Seating Charts

Social & Emotional Learning

Social & Emotional Learning Chart - the district's Social and Emotional Learning competencies chart, adjusted to a vertical layout and optimized for printing at large scale. We had them printed as color engineering prints for every classroom in the school.

Technology Assets

We've themed our various technology assets to make it easier for us to quickly figure out what's going on where.

The computer labs are color-coded and have various Colorado themes:

  • 114 is grey/green with Colorado mountains;

  • 206 is grey with Colorado colleges and universities; and

  • Innovation Lab is light grey with Chromakey green the width of the south wall, from 32" to 76" above the floor level, and features a mix of library- and school-themed art, including a tile mosaic made by the 2014-15 staff.

Device carts are named, starting in library science and turning to information science:

Dewey (retired in fall 2019) was named for American librarian and educator Melville Dewey (1851-1931), inventor of Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) and one of the founders of the American Library Association.

LC (LC 17-32) is named for the Library of Congress, whose system of classification was developed after DDC.

Otlet (OTL 01-16) is named for Belgian bibliographer Paul Otlet (1868-1944), who popularized use of the card catalog in Europe and was an early proponent of microfilm.

Vannevar (VAN 17-32) is named for American engineer Vannevar Bush (1890-1974), whose 1945 essay "As We May Think" predicted what is now known as hypertext.

Engelbart (ENG 01-30) is named for American engineer Douglas Engelbart (1925-2013), who invented the field of human-computer interaction.

Lamarr (LAM 01-15) is named for Austrian-born American actress and inventor Hedy Lamarr (1914-2000), who designed a frequency-hopping system in the early 1940s that is behind modern spread-spectrum communication technology such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Cerf and Kahn (CERF 01-30 and KAHN 01-30) are named for Vint Cerf (1943-) and Bob Kahn (1938-), American engineers credited with co-inventing TCP/IP, the communication protocol at the heart of the Internet. Vint Cerf was also instrumental in developing the first commercial e-mail system connected to the Internet.

Nelson (01 - 30) is named for American philosopher and sociologist Ted Nelson (1937-), who coined the terms "hypertext" and "hypermedia" in 1963.

Lovelace (LL 01 - 30) is named for the English mathematician Ada, Countess of Lovelace (1815-1852) who is recognized as the first person to recognize that Charles Babbage's analytical engine had applications beyond pure calculation. While not truly the first computer programmer, Lady Lovelace's work did effectively explain the abstract operation of the analytical engine.

Hamilton (HA 01 - 30) is named for American computer scientist Margaret Hamilton (1936-) who, as Director of the Software Engineering Division of the MIT Instrumentation Laboratory, developed on-board flight software for the Apollo space program. She is credited with the coining the term "software engineering".

Hopper (HOPP 1-40) is named for American computer scientist and United States Navy rear admiral Grace Murray Hopper (1906-1992), who worked on the Harvard Mark I, invented one of the first linkers (a compiler), and whose focus on machine-independent programming languages led to the development of COBOL.

Perlman (PERL 01-30) is named for American computer scientist Radia Perlman (1951-), who is most famous for inventing the spanning tree protocol, which is fundamental to the operation of network bridges.

Hoover (HOOV 01-40) is named for Erna Schneider Hoover (1926-), who invented a computerized switching system for telephone call traffic and earned one of the first software patents ever issued (patent #3,623,007, Nov. 23, 1971).

Noether (NOE 01-15), the classroom set in Mrs. Bradley's room, is named for German mathematician Emmy Noether (1882-1935), who made numerous contributions to abstract algebra and theoretical physics. Her eponymous theorem explains the connection between symmetry and conservation laws.

How to Reserve Tech

Computer labs and Chromebook carts are reserved through the Google Sheet Link.  The link is found in the Colt Corral, Staff Bulletin, and the Staff Resource Page of this site (after you log-in with staff credentials).

Grade-level computer carts (6th, 7th, and 8th grades) are dispersed to each grade level. Each cart has 15 Dell Latitude 5440 laptops, which were purchased in 2014 and 2015.

For all other tech (iPads, Innovation Lab, microphones, headphones, etc.) please see Mrs. Baker in the LMC.
